Christmas memories

The Christmas preparations have begun in the Sandbox.  The tree is up and decorated and the ornaments have been allocated to their spots around the house.  I have a little ceramic white Christmas tree that belonged to my Husband's Mother that was made for her by her Sister who loved to do ceramics.  It doesn't cast much light but it glows wonderfully at night in the dark hallway.  The little tree is a way of remembering members of the family who are no longer with us but leave us with objects that bring them closer to us at Christmas.

The display of plastic figures that make up the Creche was purchased by my Husband's Mother for our kids when they were small.   I could purchase a new set with higher end figures but this one is special to us.  It is the memories of loved ones and occasions that make this season so special.
